I have a Toshiba 80mb 5400 rpm 16mb cache in my Acer 8003lmi. When I was looking into replacing the original 4200 rpm drive, I couldn't find any performance specs that could decide whether the density of the 20 extra mb and 16mb cache on the Toshiba 5400rpm essentially equaled out to the performance of the 7200rpm 60mb 8mb cache with the Hitachi. But if you are looking for a compromise on the larger drive vs speed, you might look into the Toshiba GAX series 80mb 16mb cache as opposed to the Hitachi 80mb 8mb cache that you were thinking of.
